Janine and the Mixtape has premiered the official music video for the latest track from her upcoming second EP, XXEP.
The clip for the soulful, 4e-produced pop jam When I’m Broken was posted on the YouTube page of the New Zealand-raised singer who is now operating out of Brooklyn and starting to make waves across the world. It follows the premiere of her Lose My Mind video last week, and the EP’s atmospheric, first promotional single This Moment (Eckhart Tolle).
XXEP will be released via Atlantic Records on 12 May, six months after the launch of Janine’s debut six song set Dark Mind which featured the Pusha T-featuring lead single Hold Me. Catch the video for When I’m Broken below:
Nine years after MIKA first burst on to the scene with his first single, the still very cool Relax Take It Easy, the British singer is back with the music video for his new record’s lead single Talk About You.
Like Big Girl (You Are Beautiful) and Love Today before it, Talk About You is a catchy, cartoonish pop number with a penetrating, repetitive chorus. It is taken from MIKA’s upcoming fourth studio album No Place In Heaven – the follow up to 2012’s The Origin of Love – which will be released via Republic Records on 15 June and is available to preorder now.

“I have worked extremely hard on this, there has been laughter, tears and sweat. Renegade touches upon themes and experiences that I have never spoken out about before,” the 2008 X Factor winner has said about the EP.
“Since the last album, a lot has changed in my life, but most importantly I have changed. I’m in a great place, healthier and stronger than ever.
“I feel as an artist it’s important for one’s music to grow with them. I’m now 26 and having taken time out of the musical ring, I now have the gloves firmly back on. My music, my rules.”

Mariah Carey has released her new single Infinity to iTunes.
The relationship kiss-off is one of Mimi’s most playful releases in a long time and it serves as a welcome taster for her upcoming album #1 to Infinity – a revised extension of her 1998 career retrospective, #1s.
The collection is Mariah’s first album release since she joined LA Reid’s Epic Records after parting way with Def Jam earlier this year. The label change follows the underwhelming commercial response to her 2014 set Me. I Am Mariah… the Elusive Chanteuse which saw first week US sales of just 58k – a third of those achieved in the first seven days by her previous non-holiday release, 2009’s Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel.
The 90s-flavoured R&B track was co-produced by the emancipated songstress with Eric Hudson (Whitney Houston, Kanye West, Mary J. Blige), whilst its upcoming music video has been helmed by Hollywood director Brett Ratner. It arrives weeks before Mimi kicks off a Las Vegas residency at The Collosseum at Caesar’s Palace which launches on 6 May and will run until August.
Me and Mimi serenading one another
“I’m going to do my first ever residency in Vegas at Caesars. This is a special event for me. And again, I have to hope that the fans will enjoy this cause I’m gonna be performing, which was kind of inspired by my album #1’s, and this is now the updated version with eighteen of them.“

Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock for the last few months, you should now be pretty familiar with US band WALK THE MOON who have finally hit the pay dirt with Shut Up and Dance – the infectious, Captain Cuts-produced lead single from their latest long player Talking is Hard.
With their first US top ten hit under their belt and fast gaining traction in the UK, the Cincinatti four piece are now moving forward with plans to release their follow up, and the track they’ve chosen is the record’s opening cut Different Colors.
Another radio-friendly offering packed with bright and breezy singalong hooks that was initially released as an album countdown single, Different Colors is more than enough to ensure that this band won’t be disappearing anywhere soon.
Excellent news for fans of Britney, fans of Giorgio Moroder and fans of good pop music, for their cover of Suzanne Vega’s 1981 hit Tom’s Diner has surfaced online.
The track features on the Italian producer’s upcoming album Déjà Vu, which has already given us the Kylie and Sia-assisted singles Right Here,Right Now and Déjà Vu, and it’s available to preorder from iTunes before its 12 June release.
